Detroit ain't the only team in the league. You don't realign an entire league to benefit 1 team. Detroit will have to suck it up.

And since when was there a problem with revenue or ratings in Detroit? Don't remember the Leafs losing any viewers when they were in the west either.

The next 12 face off have a short play in round of best of 3 or best of 5 series. the winning 6 advance to a final 16.
Terrible concept.
